Tiny Wofford College Goes On the Road, Defeats SEC’s Univ. of Georgia, 60-57!!

Tiny Wofford College Goes On the Road, Defeats SEC’s Univ. of Georgia, 60-57!!

As the fourth-smallest school in the nation that plays NCAA Division I basketball, Wofford College, from The Southern Conference, knows that going on the road into tough environments is unavoidable. Two weeks ago, Wofford opened the season with a heart-breaking 63-60 loss to the Big East Conference’s University of Pittsburgh at the Peterson Events Center in Pittsburgh.  Wofford held a ten point lead with ten minutes remaining in the game, but the Panthers took the lead after an 8-0 run with just 1:33 left in the game.

After losing to the University of Georgia in overtime last season, Wofford held on in the final seconds to take a 60-57 victory over the Bulldogs on Tuesday night at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens (GA).  Leading 58-56 with just 6.1 seconds remaining, the Terriers (1-1) could only stand and watch as Georgia’s Dustin Ware had two chances to tie the game at the foul line.  But Ware missed the back end of a 1-and-1  and Wofford’s Cameron Rundles made both ends of a subsequent 1-and-1 on the other end with 3 seconds remaining, putting the Terriers up by 3 points.  Georgia (1-1) managed to get one final shot, a 3-point attempt with 1 second left by Trey Thompkins near the Bulldogs’ bench, but it didn’t fall, as Wofford saved the win.

Wofford continues play on the road, facing Bradley in Peoria (ILL) on Nov. 22, the University of Illinois in Champaign (ILL) on Nov. 24, and Seattle in Las Vegas (Nev.) on November 28.
